Young Handler Championship Series 2019

Horse Sport Ireland is pleased to announce the dates and venues for the qualifiers of the Young Handler Championship Series 2019.

The aim of this Championship is to assist in the development of the skills of young handlers to prepare and present horses for show and sale. A prize fund of €1,400 is on offer for each qualifier at this Championship and the top three placings in both categories will be invited to attend the final at the National Ploughing Championships.

The Championship is aimed at encouraging more young breeders/producers to become involved in the industry. It will also provide a unique opportunity for young handlers that are new to the industry to become involved in breeding initiatives and to gain contact and information/education and encourage long term involvement in the breeding industry.

The Championship will run over five qualifiers within the five IHB regions and will take place from June to September to allow for maximum participation. The top three young handlers from each qualifier will be eligible to compete in the final.

  • Junior: 14 – 18 years
